I've recently talked my father-in-law into keeping. He's been interested for a bit now, we've talked about making boxes, then I told him to look up TBH. He finally had one going and called me for pointers during construction. I made a couple of comments that the wife had wanted me to build one also.
Today the F-I-L showed up with a gift for the wife.
Pic attached, now all I need is to capture a swarm. :thumbsup:

Good looking hive melrose. Just be prepared that the bees seem to really like the design of a TB and will build up fast. I hived a package in one the end of March and they swarmed in May, that's how fast they built up. And I thought I was watching them close and giving them enough room :)

It's 4' by 13", he's a good guy.... retired, and keeps busy... this actually has some bells and whistles, I'll add more pics.
